Smartphones users seldom use the SMS service to contact their family or friends, and it has become more or less an unnecessary feature for many. Having said that, SMS is still an integral part of a mobile service as it allows you to keep in touch with your contacts while you are out of mobile data coverage. Well, this is where WhatsApp goes out of use and Google Messenger kicks in.
The Google Messenger app is simply a messaging app meant for managing SMS and MMS. It is similar to the stock messaging app you get on every phone, but it’s smarter. Google Messenger for Android helps you receive and send MMS and SMS messages to anyone. It allows group texts as well as audio and picture messages directly from within the app. The easy and fluid design helps you go through conversations easily, and other features like emojis, blocking, etc. make it even more awesome.
As with all the other Google apps, the Google Messenger APK has received an update. Released today, the new Google Messenger 1.7.049 APK update is 15.93 MB in size and works with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and above. If you use this app for your basic SMS needs, then this update is worth downloading. You can free download Google Messenger 1.7.049 APK from the Play Store or mirror sites like apkmirror.com.
